For those of you who aren't familiar with pro wrestling, the word "kayfabe" means to stay in character and storyline. There has been times in the ring when kayfabe has been broken, so one of the performers could get out of character and give his real feelings. that either occurs after the death of one of the fellow wrestlers, or after a national tragedy, such as 9/11.

I think that kayfabe can be used concerning message board posting. Sometimes the kayfabe (which in this case I'm using as keeping your real identity under wraps) is used to protect your professional identity. Some of the individuals which I communicate with off the boards and I identify here as their forum names have to in order to be able to express themselves for reasons I can respect.
Other times this kayfabe is used for evil or immoral means, things which give the internet a black eye.
I've stated time and again that I'm the same person on this blog and on the forums that I am if you were to meet me on the street. I don't figure an overweight, partially disabled, 51 year old grandfather would appeal to anyone except for my wife. I hope that my honesty would be one my more endearing qualities.
One last thought.
